Aptis Vocabulary Practice Test 3

Aptis General Vocabulary Test 3

Aptis Vocabulary Practice Test 3

Here’s another free Aptis Vocabulary test for Aptis General. As usual, there are 25 questions divided into four mini-tests, one for each type of question you have to answer in this component.

The four question-types are: Word Pairs, Word Definitions, Word Usage and Word Combinations. As always, we’ll begin each section with a clear description and an example of each question-type. 

Remember, the vocabulary component forms part of the Aptis Core Test.  In the Aptis Core Test you have to do 50 questions in 25 minutes.  The questions are divided equally between grammar and vocabulary. This means you do 25 questions on each area, and you can take up to 30 seconds per question. If you take too long doing the tests, they’ll automatically finish and you’ll have to start again.

For a more detailed description go to the post Aptis Vocabulary Practice Test 1.

Remember to keep these points in mind while you’re doing the tests:

  • Read all of the options carefully before choosing your answer. Some of them may be quite similar.
  • Don’t spend too long on any of the questions.  Remember, you can always come back and try it again later, both here and in the official exam.
  • Always answer the question. Never leave it blank

In this part of the test they give you a target word in the following format: ‘big = ‘.  Then you have to select (from a drop-down list) the option that has the most similar meaning to that word; in this case, ‘large’.
